Win win: when business works for women it works for everyone

Joanne Lipman

HD6054 .L57 2018

Here is a riddle: A man and his son are in a car accident. The man dies and the son is badly hurt. The son is taken to hospital for emergency surgery. The distinguished surgeon looks at the boy and says: “I can’t operate on him! He’s my son!” How can that be?

According to Lipman, 40 to 75 per cent of people today cannot figure out the answer — of course, the surgeon is the boy’s mother.

This is one of many examples in the book used to highlight the issues women still face at work. This particular example was used to show the plight of a female surgeon who was often mistaken by both men and women for a nurse.

But the author’s aim here is not to “man shame” as the book is for both men and women. As it goes through the varying problems women come up against at work, it offers some practical solutions that both sexes together can use to close the gender gap.
